Hello on a nc as have posted too much on other name.
Looking for audition and concert pieces for dd , not really modern theatre except for the more operatic pieces. She enjoys folk, Italian Arias, some church music, and standards
Examples: Ash Grove, Last Rose of Summer, The fishers song, The sun whose Rays, The sound of music, songs from The Secret garden. A Clare Benediction, Ave Maria, Amazing Grace, Panis Angelicus, voi che sepate, O mio Babino Caro. A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, Somewhere over the rainbow etc.
I know there are lots of gems out there that I probably have never heard and she drives me mad for more suggestions.
Some more church type psalms or uplifting spiritual songs would be a huge help.
Peter warlock songs - these two are Christmassy but totally hauntingly lovely and a little unusual ( depending of course on the musical areas you concentrate on) : The first mercy Bethlem down
Purcell songs: Music for a while Where the bee sucks
Folk songs : She moves through the fair The sprig of thyme ( love this , needs a smile and a twinkle in the eye!) The lark in the clear air The Sally gardens Kelvin grove The waters of Tyne
23rd psalm to brother James air
Dowland lute songs - particularly the lachrymae (flow my tears) Also ,come again sweet love Can she excuse my wrongs Now o now we needs must part Fine knacks for ladies ( bloody love Dowland!)
Messiah arias: I know that my redeemer liveth He shall feed his flock
Mozart Laudate dominum
And of course ....sniffle ... Faure pie Jesu from the requiem
That's just a broad selection of the stuff that springs to mind in various categories. Depends what suits your dds voice. Eldest had a very " boy treble" sound until recently and these suited well though the messiah stuff was too " big" for her to perform solo really. Don't be afraid of simple stuff performed with big presence and commitment to words and mood eg if you choose Dowland look behind it - it's often cheeky ( sometimes down right Tudor rude!) and politically subversive!
